With Sean away writing and performing his own play this weekend, Ashley was going solo for this week's Open Book episode. He first mentioned the success of the SNS on the Fourdown PPV predictions for last week's TNA PPV, as well as paying his respects to the late Mike Graham, who passed away on Friday. He then covers some more of the developer sessions from last month's Eurogamer with the big upcoming games, including Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and Halo 4.
The second segment covers the gaming news, including a LOT of legal cases this week for EA Sports and the Black Eyed Peas among others, the big Elite announcement from Activision regarding Black Ops 2 and how an built-in microphone doesn't mean you can talk to your friends with your WiiU, which may or may not have been built by a child. Ashley also runs down the special editions that are available for the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. And there is also a pre-recorded Sean, who tells us about the game that he's been playing this week, XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
The final part of the show has the big entertainment news, including a possible Twilight spinoff, Edgar Wright's Ant Man getting a release date and Black Dynamite may return, as well as Sean calling in live to check-in and Anthony calling in to talk about some Paranormal Activity amongst other things.
